It doesn't have to be early as such, it just has to be called before
dlopen returns.  Maybe there is a different way to achieve that, though.
 See the thread “Raise errors from ELF constructors”.  The idea is to do
something that triggers symbol resolution from libc_nonshared.a.

I wonder if a separate DSO with BIND_NOW would do the trick.  But then
we might not want to take that hit in terms of overhead (both at run
time, and for maintenance).
